Manuel Antonio house description

Casa Mirador sits on a cliff overlooking Punta Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. It is a 10-15 minute walk to both Playa Espadilla and 15-20 Playa Biesanz. Playa Espadilla is great for surfing and body boarding while Playa Biesanz is more protected and better for snorkeling and swimming.

The house was designed by an award-winning architect to bring the area’s natural beauty right into the house. There are breathtaking views from every window and terrace. Even the bathroom has a spectacular view. A tropical forest surrounds the back of the house providing privacy and a front row seat to Costa Rica’s exotic plants and wildlife.

The house has two bedrooms on the second floor and can easily sleep four people. There is a queen sized bed in one room and two twin beds in the other. There are several private terraces, including one in the master bedroom. The architect designed the house in a European style. It is simple and elegant in its construction and furnishings. The house is mostly suitable for those who do not require lavish amenities, as there is no TV or air-conditioning. You will find however, that air conditioning is not necessary as the house sits on the top of a ridge and enjoys a constant fresh ocean breeze. Numerous windows and ceiling fans also provide for excellent ventilation.

Casa Mirador is a place to relax and appreciate Costa Rica’s natural beauty. In the morning, you will awaken to the exotic songs of rainforest birds and the sounds of the rolling waves of the sea below. Occasionally, you will hear howler monkeys in the distance (sometimes not so distant) giving their morning salutations. Often there are toucans in the palm trees around the house. If you’re lucky, you might even see white-faced monkeys, squirrel monkeys or sloths dangling and jumping from the trees around the house. There are identification cards in the house as well so you will know what type of animal you are viewing - from mammals to birds to amphibians to butterflies.

You can have your morning coffee on the terrace and enjoy the fresh breeze as you take in the spectacular view of Manuel Antonio and Playa Espadilla. It is a short 10-15 minute walk downhill to Espadilla Beach below the houses and an additional 15-20 minute walk along the beach to Manuel Antonio and the road to the National Park.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove/oven, microwave oven, toaster oven, refrigerator, coffee-maker, blender, and all plates, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The house has a telephone in the living room area. There is one full bathroom and also an outside shower. There is hot water throughout the house, including the outside shower. Sheets and towels will be changed once each full week of your stay. This can be done more often upon request. There are plenty of towels for showering and larger beach towels for outside use.

The houses are gay and family friendly and the owners and caretakers welcome everyone to enjoy the property.

Restrictions

Please note that the house sits on a ridge and is only accessible by a series of approximately 110 steps leading from the parking area up to the house. This can make it a moderate physical endeavor. As such, it might not be the best choice for people who are physically restricted. The walk up the stairs, however, is rewarding as it provides you with the fantastic view on top. There is an electric elevator basket that runs up the side of the hill the to the houses, but it was constructed to carry luggage and supplies only. The caretaker will take charge of getting all of your luggage to the house. You need only take your body up the stairs. The steepness of the terrain, the stairs (outside and inside the house), and the high balconies and terraces may make the house unsafe for children under a certain age. Please refrain from smoking inside the house.

Area

Manuel Antonio National Park is one of Costa Rica 's best known and most often visited parks.The area is home to over 353 species of birds. Howler and white-faced monkeys, two-toed and three-toed sloths, coati-mundi and raccoons frequent the beaches in and outside the Park.

The National Park area offers some of the best beaches on Costa Rica's Pacific coast for surfing, swimming and snorkeling. Within the area, there is much to enjoy; bird watching, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and boat trips for fishing or to watch dolphins.

Located besides the town of Quepos in the Central Pacific Zone, the area is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica.
